Re: handbrake warning light switch

Re: panhard rod fettling

This any help? You could do with offering it up as there may be slight differences car to car. It only needs to clear the bulge in the cover plate towards the top as the bump stops will bottom out before it hits the diff cover plate any lower.

Re: Side Screen Ferrule Help

I find the sidescreens to be actually quite useful even without a roof on, on a long drive they cut out quite a bit of buffeting. Granted they don't look great but I would advise getting some. In some respects a soft top too. There's nothing worse than being on a trip and getting a real cloud burst....

Re: Expanding foam and trim

There's fill and overfill.
Gerry's advice worked for me and is a cheap and viable solution although there are other interpretations.
Dynamat is an option and the prior suggestion of damping between the outer skin and cross brace is most critical to reduce drumming.

Re: Expanding foam and trim

Hi Simon, My blog touches on it, part 28. Home page, Building and Servicing, Building a Hawk 289 Stuart Clarke, Part 28 IVA. As Clive says, you only need to form contact between the outer skin and brace within the cavity to stop the drumming. Some decent blobs do it. I used Hardboard to fill the hol...
